University Committee on Biological Sciences (UCBS)
Fall Deadline: October 16, 2013 by 5:00pm
The University Committee on Biological Sciences administers the nomination process for Harvard faculty for a selection of funding opportunities from private foundations that require candidates to be nominated by Harvard University. Each year, several foundations invite Harvard junior faculty members and postdocs to apply for their fellowships and grants, which serve as critical funding at the early stages of a research career. Interested investigators must first apply for the Harvard nomination through the UCBS, and the committee will select the final candidates who will then submit applications to the foundations.
